In order to lessen the impact on businesses on Wapakoneta Avenue near Russell Road, Sidney officials broke the project into two segments, with the first being from just south of Ruth Street to Russell Road. “The goal was to get that section done as quickly as possible,” said See PROJECT/Page 3A

According to NHTSA 62 percent of the 10,135 passenger vehicle occupants who were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes overnight (6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m.) were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the fatal crash, compared to 43 percent during the daytime hours. Too many drivers
and passengers on the road are not wearing their seat belts, and it all too often ends in tragedy. The goal is to save more lives; therefore, the officers will be out enforcing seat belt laws. It is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself and your family while in a vehicle. More than 900 law enforcement partners around Ohio will be aggressively enforcing the law during the mobilization.

Driver hits hikers DAMASCUS, Va. (AP) — Authorities believe the driver who plowed into dozens of hikers marching in a Virginia mountain town parade suffered from a medical condition and did not cause the crash intentionally, an emergency official said Sunday. Officials did not have a formal confirmation or any specifics on the condition, but based on the accounts of authorities and witnesses on the scene, they are confident the issue was medical, said Pokey Harris, Washington County’s director of emergency management. “There is no reason to believe this was intentional,” she said. In what witnesses called a frantic scene at the parade, about 50 to 60 people suffered injuries ranging from critical to superficial Saturday. No fatalities were reported.
Meeting set Shelby County Regional Planning Commission Executive Board will consider three surveys and hear the director’s report during a meeting that will begin at 12:15 p.m. Tuesday in Shelby County the Annex meeting room.

Randy Magoto, city engineering manager. Completion of the first phase was set to be finished in 45 days of the project getting underway. “We are a little ahead of schedule,” Magoto said Friday. Weather permitting, Magoto said he expects all curbs and the base coat of asphalt to be completed by June 3, with crews then moving to the section from Ruth Street north to Parkwood Street. Some businesses in the affected construction area report their sales are down sharply in recent weeks. “It’s impacted our business a lot, our sales are down 75 percent,” said Lisa Quesada, manager/owner of Dona Cata, 1306 Wapakoneta Ave. She said the restaurant’s lunch business has been especially hard hit. “A lot of our customers don’t want to come because it looks like you can’t get through,” she said. “People don’t want to deal with zig-zagging around the machines.” Quesada said she has tried to get the word out to customers that they are open, placing advertisements stating there is access to the restaurant. “I think they (the city) could have planned this better,” Quesada said, adding that she had contacted City Manager Mark Cundiff about the city compensating business for lost sales and was told there would be no such compensation. Cundiff said Friday there is no money in the budget to reimburse businesses for lost revenues and that the city doesn’t do that for con-

struction projects. He said the city does empathize with the businesses for the disruption and has tried to minimize the impact. “We need to do everything we can to make sure there is access to the businesses,” he said. When the project began, there was a problem with signage to advise motorists that access is being maintained to the business and that was quickly rectified. Cundiff said construction crews also have been reminded to make sure access is maintained, especially during the busy lunch period. “At the end for the project, they are going to have more curb appeal,” Cundiff said. “We encourage everyone to support those businesses,” Magoto said. “It’s hurt our dine-in business, but we made up for it with delivery,” said Al Bertsch, owner of Al’s Pizza, 1315 Wapakoneta Ave. “It’s not as bad as it was last time when they cut off through traffic,” he said. Jason Williams, owner of The Hack Shack and Eleete Motors, located at the corner of Russell Road and Wapakoneta Avenue, said since his business has corner access, construction hasn’t had a major impact. He said he has been a minor nuisance with the vehicle detailing portion of his business since the equipment creates a lot of dust. A spokesperson for the Clark gas station at the corner of Russell Road and Wapakoneta Avenue said the station’s sales have declined because of the project.

Focus group meetings end at Edison PIQUA — Throughout January and February, Edison Community College hosted a series of focus group meetings in effort to implement SOAR, a comprehensive planning strategic method. SOAR, an acronym for Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results, engages key constituents to help construct the college’s strategic plan. The focus group meetings consisted of faculty, staff, students and community members. Participants were asked seven open-ended questions about Edison and their responses were recorded anonymously. By listening to the perspective of various stakeholders, the college is able to gain insight into the needs and concerns of its service area, which includes Darke, Miami and Shelby counties. A total of 82 external constituents participated in the most recent focus groups. Those participating included Edison alumni and retirees, nonprofit organization leaders, local chambers of commerce, four-year university partners, high school and career center partners, local job centers, heath care and industry partners, as well as suppliers of Edison.

Hearing from all perspectives helps to shed light on what is working and what is not, what was helpful and what was not.” A total of 1,904 responses were collected throughout the process. The approaching next steps include identifying key areas of data collected, an initial review of findings, producing a preliminary executive summary, and writing a strategic plan. Upon completion of these steps, a second, more indepth review of the data will be made and followed by implementing the final strategic plan. The goal of those examining the results is to develop a strategic plan that will be applied at the start of the college’s upcoming fiscal year. “We have completed the first steps in synchronizing our data analysis approach,” said Loleta Collins, assistant dean of academic advancement. As the planning process comes to an end, Edison will host a series of public listening events and will present the final strategic plan to the community.

Bill would require only 1 license plate CLEVELAND (AP) — Ohioans would only be required to display one license plate on their vehicles instead of two if a bill proposed by two state legislators is approved. State Reps. Terry Johnson, of McDermott, and Stephen Slesnick, of Canton, say requiring one license plate on the rear bumper could save the state more than $1 million annually, The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reported.
They said the bill also would save money for car owners with vehicles not built to have front plates. They now pay additional costs to have brackets put on cars to hold front plates. But opponents of the bill, including some law enforcement officials, say removing the requirement for the front plate would take away a tool they use to deter crime. Several law enforcement officials who testi-
DID YOU KNOW? COMBINED!
Wind electricity receives more subsidies per megawatthour than every other electricity generation technology...
According to the US Department of Energy’s energy Information Administration (EIA), wind received 42% of all electricity generation subsidies in exchange for producing less than 3% of our electricity and virtually none of our grid dependability services. That figure doesn’t include additional federal programs such as wind-specific five year double declining accelerated depreciation schedule from the IRS, numerous federal grants and loan guarantees and an artificial market for“intermittent generators” inherent in recent state mandates for renewable electricity. Someone’s not being honest in an attempt to sway Sidney and Shelby County voters and county commissioners.

fied this past week before the House Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee said front plates make it easier for citizens to report people involved in crimes. They also allow police to locate vehicles in crime or traffic investigations and help to identify motorists, the bill’s opponents said. But Slesnick said the dual plates have nothing to do with deterring crime. “What is going on in states that don’t require front license plates?” he said. The five states that surround Ohio — Pennsylvania, Kentucky, West Virginia, Indiana and Michigan — only require one license plate. Rep. Bill Patmon, of Cleveland, said requiring only one plate doesn’t seem to have impaired enforcement of the law in those states. “If that were the case, we would put license plates on the sides of
cars, not just the front and the back,” Patmon said. But Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath wants to keep the current law. He says having two plates helps police and witnesses identify vehicles involved in crimes and “definitely gives us an edge in identifying vehicles in the city.” The State Highway Patrol also supports dual plates, saying they help law enforcement at emergency scenes and in investigating hit-skip accidents or thefts at gas pumps. “The value the additional identifier on the front of the vehicle can be a valuable tool for law enforcement when a crime occurs,” said patrol spokeswoman Lt. Anne Ralston. Patmon said dropping the front-plate requirement also would deter selective enforcement by police targeting cars solely because the front plate is missing.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Police made regular crime runs to the Cleveland street where three women were held captive in a house over a decade before escaping to freedom, a crime analysis published Sunday shows. Since the 2002 abduction of the first victim, Michelle Knight, Cleveland police went to the block along Seymour Avenue to take crime reports nearly 160 times. The analysis published by The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer says that amounted to just over one crime report a month over the past decade for a city block with fewer than 20 homes. According to the analysis, there were more than 35 assaults, many of them domestic crimes against women and some resulting in busted lips, bleeding noses and protection order violations. In addition, Cleveland police investigated a dozen drug-related crimes on the block. It was May 6 when Amanda Berry broke through a locked door, yelled to neighbors for help calling police and enabled Knight and Gina DeJesus to escape. A former school bus driver, 52-year-old Ariel Castro, has been charged with three counts of rape and four counts of kidnapping, including Berry’s 6-yearold daughter fathered by Castro. His defense team says Castro will plead not guilty. Two Castro brothers arrested with Ariel have been cleared and released. The crime analysis also showed 10 people were reported missing, some involving multiple reports about habitual runaways. The paper says all the missing apparently returned home to Seymour Avenue. Many of the other crime reports on Seymour Avenue, located near Interstate 90 just west of downtown, were quality-of-life crimes including break-ins, stolen cars and slashed tires. The paper compared the crime reports and found them more numerous than those on the section of Imperial Avenue where Anthony Sowell lived and preyed on women, raping and killing 11 and attacking several more, during a nearly 11-year stretch. Families who have lived on Seymour for years attribute housing decay to an increasing number of homes that became high turnover rentals. Others say the neighborhood seems safer in recent years after police chased away drug dealers. Records show narcotics officers searched three homes, including one two doors from Castro’s house. The Castro house has been boarded up and fenced off, with police keeping watch. ——— Information from: The Plain Dealer, http://www.cleveland.com
Ohio to bolster background checks COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio officials plan to bolster criminal background checks for those home health-care workers who provide direct care to the disabled and elderly. The state has received a $2.1 million federal grant to provide increased reviews for more than 100,000 workers who serve patients in Medicaid- and Medicare-funded settings. Gov. John Kasich’s administration said last week that Ohio also will provide $700,000 in
state funds to improve background checks. The money will help the state to extend the use of the attorney general’s fingerprint database to direct-care providers. Currently, workers receive a background check prior to being hired by their employers. As of January, the state instituted rules requiring post-hiring checks at least every five years. State officials say the electronic system, known as the attorney general’s Retained Ap-
Fingerprint plicant Database Information Exchange, will make post-hiring background checks timelier and less burdensome. Plus, they say, it will improve the safety of those patients who receive Medicaid or Medicare services in their own home or other community-based setting. “It is important that seniors and people with disabilities can trust the service providers that come into their homes, and this program will ensure that home-based services are of the high-
est quality,” said Greg Moody, the director of the governor’s Office of Health Transformation. Attorney General Mike DeWine says his office will be able to immediately notify employers of a worker’s arrest or a conviction. The system monitors and reports post-hiring convictions in real time, allowing offenders with disqualifying convictions to be removed from their jobs immediately. It’s yet to be determined when those automated check would start.

NATION/WORLD TODAY IN HISTORY BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, May 20, the 140th day of 2013. There are 225 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 20, 1927, Charles Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field in Long Island, N.Y., aboard the Spirit of St. Louis on his historic solo flight to France. On this date: • In 1712, the original version of Alexander Pope’s satirical mockheroic poem “The Rape of the Lock” was published anonymously in Lintot’s Miscellany. • In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Homestead Act, which was intended to encourage settlements west of the Mississippi River by making federal land available for farming. • In 1902, the United States ended a three-year military presence in Cuba as the Republic of Cuba was established under its first elected president, Tomas Estrada Palma. • In 1932, Amelia Earhart took off from Newfoundland to become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. (Because of weather and equipment problems, Earhart set down in Northern Ireland instead of her intended destination, France.) • In 1939, regular trans-Atlantic mail service began as a Pan American Airways plane, the Yankee Clipper, took off from Port Washington, N.Y., bound for Marseille, France. • In 1942, during World War II, the Office of Civilian Defense was established. • In 1959, nearly 5,000 Japanese-Americans had their U.S. citizenship restored after renouncing it during World War II. • In 1961, a white mob attacked a busload of Freedom Riders in Montgomery, Ala., prompting the federal government to send in U.S. marshals to restore order. • In 1969, U.S. and South Vietnamese forces captured Ap Bia Mountain, referred to as “Hamburger Hill” by the Americans, following one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. • In 1970, some 100,000 people demonstrated in New York’s Wall Street district in support of U.S. policy in Vietnam and Cambodia. • In 1988, Laurie Dann, 30, walked into a Winnetka, Ill., elementary school classroom, where she shot to death 8-yearold Nicholas Corwin and wounded several other children. After wounding a young man at his home, Dann took her own life. • In 1993, an estimated 93 million people tuned in for the final first-run episode of the sitcom “Cheers” on NBC.
OUT OF THE BLUE
One last bicycle ride EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon funeral home in Eugene offers natural burials where the ride to the person's final resting place is on the back of a threewheeled bicycle. Sunset Hills Cemetery and Funeral Home director Wade Lind says he got the idea from bikers and designed the pedal-powered hearse himself. It has an electric motor to give him a little help hauling the casket. KVAL reports Lind has bicycled five bodies so far and there's a waiting list for the service. The ride and a bamboo casket that looks like a basket costs about $3,500.

Who won? Nobody knows yet ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) — Some lucky person walked into a Publix supermarket in suburban Florida over the past few days and bought a ticket now worth an estimated $590.5 million — the highest Powerball jackpot in history. But it wasn’t Matthew Bogel. On Sunday, he loaded groceries into his car after shopping at the Publix. He shook his head when asked about the jackpot. “It’s crazy, isn’t it?” he said. “That’s so much money.” It’s an amount too high for many to imagine. Compare it to the budget for the city of Zephyrhills: This year’s figure is just more than $49 million. The winning Powerball jackpot is 12 times that. Whoever has the ticket hadn’t come forward as of Sunday afternoon. “This would be the sixth Florida Powerball winner and right now, it’s the sole winner of the largest ever Powerball jackpot,” Florida Lottery executive Cindy O’Connell told The Associated Press. “We’re delighted right now that we have the sole winner.” Publix spokeswoman Maria Brous said that there are a lot of rumors about who won, but the store doesn’t know. “We’re excited for the winner or winners,” she said. Florida Lottery spokesman David Bishop said Sunday afternoon that it was doubtful the winner would come for-
ward that day. The ticketholder can’t claim the prize until Monday when the agency opens, he said. “It never happens this quickly,” Bishop said. “If they know they won, they’re going to contact their attorney or an accountant first so they can get their affairs in order.” O’Connell said Florida has had more Powerball winners than any other state but did not give any indication whether anyone had stepped forward with the winning ticket in Saturday’s drawing. But plenty of people in Zephyrhills — population 13,337 — are wondering whether it’s someone they know. Joan Albertson drove to the Publix early Sunday morning with her camera in hand, in case the winner emerged. She said she had bought a ticket at a store across the street, and the idea of winning that much money was still something of a shock. “Oh, there’s so much good that you could do with that amount of money.” Albertson said. “I don’t even know where to begin.” Zephyrhills is a small city in Pasco County, about 30 miles northeast of downtown Tampa. Once a rural farming town, it’s now known as a hotbed for skyAP Photo/Scott Iskowitz diving activity, and the home to large retiree mobile home SATELLITE TRUCKS line the parking lot where the highest parks and Zephyrhills bottled Powerball jackpot worth an estimated $590.5 million was sold, at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, Fla. on Sunday. water.
Troops push into rebel-held town

METRO-NORTH EMPLOYEES work at the site of Friday's train derailment in Bridgeport. Conn. on Sunday. Crews will spend days rebuilding 2,000 feet of track, overhead wires and signals following the collision between two trains Friday evening that injured 72 people, Metro-North President Howard Permut said Sunday.
Governor: Expect traffic mess HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Traffic in southwest Connecticut could be a mess for as much as a week until service is restored to the commuter rail line affected by a derailment that injured scores of passengers, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy warned Sunday. Malloy used dire language to describe traffic troubles for the work week ahead in an area that even in normal times is a pain for motorists. And the governor warned that the weather will not cooperate as rainy weather forecast will make driving a bit more treacherous. Malloy even urged commuters to stay out of the state if possible. “Tomorrow’s commute will be extremely challenging,” he said at a brief news conference in Hartford. “Residents should plan for a week’s worth of disruptions.” If all 30,000 affected commuters took to the highways to get to work, “we would literally have a parking lot,” the governor said. If a substantial number of affected consumers hit the roads, traffic will be “greatly slowed,” he said. The state will dispatch more state troopers and tow trucks to respond to car accidents that could come with crowded roads and slipper conditions, he said. “If you are going to New York and you get to
New York or you’re transporting yourself to New York you may decide that perhaps you should stay there for the duration of this disturbance,” Malloy said. Crews will spend days rebuilding 2,000 feet of track, overhead wires and signals following the collision between two trains Friday evening that injured 72 people. Nine remained hospitalized, with one critically. “This amounts to the wholesale reconstruction of a two-track electrified railroad,” he said. Several days of around-the-clock work will be required, including inspections and testing of the newly rebuilt system, Metro-North President Howard Permut said. The damaged rail cars were removed from the tracks on Sunday, the first step toward making the repairs. Starting with the Monday morning rushhour, a shuttle train will operate about every 20 minutes between New Haven and Bridgeport and two shuttle buses will run between Bridgeport and Stamford stations, state transportation officials said. For morning and evening peak commutes, limited train service will operate between Grand Central Terminal and Westport. State officials said travel times will be significantly longer than normal and trains will be crowded.
BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian troops pushed into a rebel-held town near the Lebanese border on Sunday, fighting house-tohouse and bombing from the air as President Bashar Assad tried to strengthen his grip on a strategic strip of land running from the capital to the Mediterranean coast. With the regime scoring gains on the battlefield, the U.S. and Russia could face an even tougher task persuading Assad and his opponents to attend talks on ending Syria’s 26month-old conflict. Washington and Moscow hope to start talks with an international conference as early as next month, though no date has been set. Government forces launched the offensive on the town of Qusair just hours after Assad said in a newspaper interview that he’ll stay in his job until elections — effectively rejecting an opposition demand that any talks on a political transition lead to his ouster. Even though the regime and the main opposition group have not yet committed to attending the conference, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Sunday that he is hopeful it can take place “very soon,” possibly in early June. In addition to the U.S. and Russia, he said he has spoken with Britain, France, China and other key parties. Previous diplomatic initiatives have failed, in part because of divisions within the international community and because the regime and the armed opposition believed they could achieve more on the battlefield than in talks.
Honeybees trained to find land mines ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Mirjana Filipovic is still haunted by the land mine blast that killed her boyfriend and blew off her left leg while on a fishing trip nearly a decade ago. It happened in a field that was supposedly demined. Now, unlikely heroes may be coming to the rescue to prevent similar tragedies: sugarcraving honeybees. Croatian researchers are training them to find unexploded mines littering their country and the rest of the Balkans.
When Croatia joins the European Union on July 1, in addition to the beauty of its aquamarine Adriatic sea, deep blue mountain lakes and lush green forests, it will also bring numerous un-cleared minefields to the bloc’s territory. About 750 square kilometers (466 square miles) are still suspected to be filled with mines from the Balkan wars in the 1990s. Nikola Kezic, an expert on the behavior of honeybees, sat quietly together with a group of young researchers on a re-
cent day in a large net tent filled with the buzzing insects on a grass field lined with acacia trees. The professor at Zagreb University outlined the idea for the experiment: Bees have a perfect sense of smell that can quickly detect the scent of the explosives. They are being trained to identify their food with the scent of TNT. “Our basic conclusion is that the bees can clearly detect this target, and we are very satisfied,” said Kezic, who leads a part of a larger multi-
million-euro program, called “Tiramisu,” sponsored by the EU to detect land mines on the continent. Several feeding points were set up on the ground around the tent, but only a few have TNT particles in them. The method of training the bees by authenticating the scent of explosives with the food they eat appears to work: bees gather mainly at the pots containing a sugar solution mixed with TNT, and not the ones that have a different smell.

Foster Care Month engenders partnership initiatives COLUMBUS — May is National Foster Care Month, and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) has joined Gov. John R. Kasich in recognizing Ohio’s foster parents and kinship caregivers for their kindness and generosity in caring for children whose parents cannot. “It is never easy when a child must be removed from his or her home,” said ODJFS Director Michael Colbert. “Ohio’s foster families and kinship caregivers provide safe, stable homes for children in need. They make an extraordinary contribution to the children in their care, to their communities and to the state as a whole. I commend them for their unwavering commitment to children in need.” Over the last year, ODJFS began two partnerships that will improve Ohio’s foster care system for older children and teens. The agency has part-
annual ride through various parts of Ohio will stop in Sidney on June 15. Approximately 2,500 riders are expected. Gary Carter announced that all of the scholarships have been awarded and the winners will be in attendance at the May 29 meeting to be introduced to the members. Two new members will be inducted at the May 15 meeting. Karas conducted an auction which netted $11 for The Eliminate Project. The Sidney Kiwanis meets at noon every Wednesday at the Sidney Moose Lodge. For information, call 710-4944.
nered with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to place adoption recruiters trained in the “Wendy’s Wonderful Kids” model in counties around the state. Research has shown that children served with this method are up to three times more likely to be adopted. The recruiters are focusing solely on finding adoptive homes for older children who have been in foster care for more than two years. Ideally, all children will find permanent, loving homes. When that doesn’t happen, ODJFS still works to make their experience in foster care the best it can be. Earlier this year, the agency partnered with Big Brother Big Sisters to launch a program called “Connecting the Dots from Foster Care to Employment and Independent Living” in eight pilot counties. For younger teenagers in foster care, Connecting the Dots offers mentoring, educa-
tional supports and work-readiness training, so that if they turn 18 before finding permanent homes, they will be better prepared for life on their own. For older teenagers and young adults, it will offer improved independent living and employment services so that they will have more support, more guidance, more connections and more knowledge as they transition to work, vocational training or college, and independent living. Ohio has 12,741 children in foster care and 9,752 licensed foster parents. In addition, many children live with grandparents or other relatives when their parents cannot care for them. Ohioans interested in becoming foster parents or learning more about the foster care system should contact their county public children services agency. A directory of county agencies is available at http://jfs.ohio.gov/county.

Elias Helman — Forty-three members of the Fairlawn High School Class of 2013 were presented diplomas Sunday afternoon during commencement exercises at the school. Speakers at the graduation included valedictorian Elias Helman, son of Jeff and Cindy Helman, salutatorian Samantha Morris, daughter of Elizabeth Morris, and class president Trey Everett, son of Tim and Jackie Everett. The late Kyle Anthony Burch, a classmate who passed away in elementary school, was recognized with an honorary diploma.
“Before I begin, I would like to draw your attention to the empty chair sitting here,” Everett said in his remarks. “It is for our classmate Kyle Burch, who we truly miss,” Everett said. “He left us very young, in the fifth grade, and we truly wish he was here with us today. He was a member of our class and will always be a member of our class. He will never be forgotten.” In his address, Helman challenged his classmates to show what they can do in the future and reminded them they will create their destiny.
“I hope that one day what we have achieved here will be outshone by our futures,” he said. “But for now, the world is quite ignorant of our abilities, and it is our job to go forth and show it just what we can do.” Morris said she and her fellow graduates are entering a new chapter in the their lives. “High school is over and we close the pages of our senior year,” she said. “But our new chapter is beginning. Each day is a blank page. “Class, fill it with memories and joy so that we can all look back and smile without regrets.”

Valedictorians Alex Meyer and Nathan Wahrer and Salutatorian Trey Elchert reminisced in a shared speech about highlights of 13 years of schooling in Jackson Center. “We have laughed together, cried together, and watched each other grow into the people we are today,” they said. “These last 13 years of school may have felt extremely long for some and too short for others; but we have all reached the end of this major chapter in our lives … We are all going to be traveling along on different paths, but if you follow those paths backwards, they all lead back to Jackson Center High School. We are all connected in a special way that only occurs here. Our camaraderie will outlast our separate paths, and in the end we can always look back and be proud of where we came from, the friends we had, and the lessons we learned from being the class of 2013 of Jackson Center High School.” Senior class adviser Cathy Tenney presented a multi-media piece about the class. The Rev. Daniel Hunt, of Petersburg Parish, delivered the invocation and benediction.

GENE R. HOELLRICH stands next to a canoe he built and has donated to the Shelby County Veterans to D.C. Committee. The canoe will be raffled off and all proceeds will be used for the September trip to D.C. for the veterans to see their memorials.
Fundraisers underway to send veterans to D.C. A “Wee Lassie” is going to help send Shelby County veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials built in their honor. Gene R. Hoellrich, of Sidney, has built the canoe “Wee Lassie,” which is based on a pattern popularized by the late Mac McCarthy in his book, “Feather Weight Boat Building.” This is the seventh canoe Hoellrich has built. “Twenty years ago I saw a canoe on top of a car,” said Hoellrich. “I got a book and built my first canoe. With the help of friends, two more canoes were built. He then built one for his daughter when she graduated from veterinary school. He has also built four woodstrip kayaks. The 11-foot, 6-inch canoe is built for one person, he said. The hull is western red cedar with an accent strip of aspen and walnut. It is covered in and out by fiberglass and marine epoxy and is varnished with exterior marine varnish. The small keel, decks, rails and thwart are either of local ash or walnut or a combination of the two. Hoellrich, a long-time
lawyer and retired judge in Darke County, said he spent around three months working on the canoe. He started it last fall. He and his wife, Patricia, a retired kindergarten teacher, wintered in Texas. When they came home in the spring, he finished the canoe. A veteran of the U.S. Army, Hoellrich decided the group sending veterans to D.C. would be a good charity to receive the canoe. Tickets for the canoe are $5 each or six for $25. Tickets will be available at the Sidney Farmer’s Market Saturday mornings. The winning ticket will be drawing during Applefest in September. The committee is also selling tickets for a hog raffle. This is a whole hog, processed any way the winner wishes (packaged, whole hog for a BBQ, or however they want). The club is also paying for the processing. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5. They are available from any committee member or at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings. The drawing will be done at the Applefest along with the canoe drawing. The winner will be notified.
A group of volunteers will be producing a USO-style show at the Sidney American Legion Post 217 on June 29 at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be available along with entertainment, dancing, and good camaraderie. Admission price is $7 and the proceeds will go toward the Vets to D.C. trip scheduled for September. Tickets are available from any committee member, at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings or at the Shelby County Historical Society building. The Watercutter family is sponsoring the fourth Watercutter Memorial Golf Scramble on July 20 at the Arrowhead Golf Course in Minster. This will be a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Good fun, food and lots of door prizes will mark this 18 hole, four-person scramble. Get a team together and call the Pro shop at Arrowhead, (419) 6283111, to get registered. Don’t have a team? Just call the Pro shop and they will take your name and try to get you fixed up. For more information about any of the fundraisers, contact Jody or Ray Prater, 6386326.

OF LOCAL INTEREST Hoying battling injury Texas Rangers outfield prospect and Fort Loramie native Jared Hoying found himself in a rehitting cent slump for the "AA" Frisco Roughriders of the Texas League. He began to come out of it against visiting San Antonio on Friday night with a grand slam homer in his final plate appearance. On Saturday he opened with a double but injured his hamstring while baserunning and was removed from the game on his 24th birthday. On Sunday afternoon he confirmed a hamstring pull and said he will be out at least the customary minimum of seven to ten days. Hoying also had a hamstring injury during 2010, his rookie year in pro baseball. His current batting average is .242. He could be placed on the disabled list for a minimum of seven days.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A stunning ninth inning abruptly halted the Cincinnati Reds’ winning ways. Aroldis Chapman gave up consecutive homers to Freddy Galvis and Erik Kratz and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 3-2 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday. Chapman (3-2) blew his second straight save opportunity after converting his first eight chances this season. The 100 mph throwing left-hander walked pinch-hitter Delmon Young on four pitches to open the ninth. Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee pinch-ran for Young and was caught trying to steal second base, but Chapman wouldn’t record another out. Kratz, who entered the game in the third inning after Carlos Ruiz left with a strained right hamstring, pulled a 3-2 pitch over the seats in left to tie it at 2-all. Galvis followed by lining a 1-1 pitch just inside the foul pole in left. “An unfortunate ending, stunning, but that’s the game,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “It kind of spoils you because you always expect (Chapman) to come through. We’ve got to get him out of the funk he’s in and hope it doesn’t last too long.” Chapman got off to a rough start Sunday against Young and seemed upset with plate umpire Tim Welke while facing the Philadelphia pinchhitter. “I thought I threw good pitches to the first batter,” Chapman said through an interpreter. And the lefty wasn’t disappointed with the location of Galvis’ homer, nor did he expect Sunday’s loss to linger. “A fastball where I wanted it,” he said. “I don’t see any problems. Everybody gets hit. Why not me?” The Reds appeared on their way to their ninth win in 10 games when Chapman entered.

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES’ Freddy Galvis leaps into the group of his teammates after hitting a game-winning solo-home run in the ninth inning of the MLB National League baseball game with the Cincinnati Reds Sunday in Philadelphia. The Phillies won 3-2. Jay Bruce homered and Homer Bailey tossed seven scoreless innings for the Reds. “I would’ve lost a lot of money if I’d bet on that one,” Bailey said. “But that’s the game.” Bruce led off the second with a towering shot to straightaway center to extend his hitting streak to 10 games. He is batting .390 with four homers and 12 RBIs during the spurt. Joey Votto also stayed hot by going 2 for 4 for the Reds. Votto extended his hitting streak to eight games, and he is batting 17 for 33 over the stretch. Bailey shut down the Phillies for the second time this season and left without a victory for the second time. He allowed five hits with three
strikeouts and a walk. He also got a no-decision on April 16 in a 1-0 loss to the Phillies when he pitched eight scoreless innings while allowing two hits with a career high-tying 10 strikeouts and no walks. It looked as if Bailey would earn the win this time before Chapman’s struggles. “Bailey pitched a great game,” Baker said. “It was a real tough one to lose.” The Phillies looked on their way to their seventh shutout of the season before the eighth inning. Chase Utley’s RBI single in the eighth inning snapped the Phillies’ rut of 16 scoreless innings. Ben Revere, returning to the starting lineup after sitting out the past four, had three hits for the Phillies. Re-
vere raised his average to .254. Jonathan Pettibone gave up two runs — one earned — and seven hits in seven innings and has yet to allow more than three earned runs in six career starts. The Reds added a run in the sixth on Todd Frazier’s RBI double. The run was unearned, though, as Votto advanced to second on Domonic Brown’s throwing error after leading off with a single. Philadelphia got to 2-1 in the eighth on Utley’s single that scored Revere, but Brown flew out to right with runners on first and second against reliever Sean Marshall to end the threat. But the Phillies made up for it in the ninth off Chapman.
Indians blank Mariners 6-0 CLEVELAND (AP) — Cy Young himself wouldn’t want to mess with the Indians right now. Justin Masterson struck out a season-high 11 in seven shutout innings and Michael Brantley hit a three-run homer and drove in four runs off Felix Hernandez as Cleveland toppled yet another former Cy Young Award winner on Sunday with a 6-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Brantley connected in the second inning off Hernandez (5-3), who failed to go at least six innings for the first time this season. The Indians, who improved to 17-4 since April 28, are 7-1 this season against Cy Young recipients. They’ve knocked off Hernandez, R.A. Dickey, David Price, Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Bartolo Colon and Justin Verlander. The Indians are taking pride in knocking off trophy-winning pitchers. “We just take it as a challenge,” Indians first baseman Nick Swisher said. “We’ve got that scrappy-type and grittytype of team. It may not always be pretty, man, but somehow we’re going to find a way to get it done. We just love coming to the ballpark right now. “Things are rocking,” Swisher said. Before the game, Brantley said the Indians talked about taking down another trophywinning pitcher. “We’re loose and we’re not holding nothing back,” Brantley said. “Everybody has smiles on their faces. We just want to make sure we enjoy this. We’re playing great baseball right now and we just

Lehman tennis duo wins sectional title BY ROB KISER Civitas Media DAYTON — Indoors or outdoors, Lehman senior Pierce Bennett and junior Mitchell Shroyer left no doubt they were the best doubles team in the Troy Division II sectional tournament. After playing their first two matches outdoors Tuesday at Troy, the semifinal and finals were moved to the Dayton Indoor Centre Courts Saturday. And the results were the same. The top seeds handled fourth seeded Michael Schmid and Dakota Smith of Northeastern 6-0, 6-2 in the semifinals, before taking care of second seeds Kenton Dickison and Jack Blevins of Milton-Union 6-0, 6-3 in the title match. The duo will be playing in the district tournament Thursday at the ATP Tennis Center near

LEHMAN’S PIERCE Bennett returns the ball during the Division II Sectional Saturday. Kings Island — and it is Bennett’s fourthstraight trip to the district tournament. “No, way did we expect this,” Bennett said of rolling through the tournament without dropping a set. “The two guys from Northeastern are great at returning the ball and lobbing it. Those guys in the finals (Milton-Union) really hit the ball hard. So, I am pretty proud of what we have been able to accomplish.”
They are a dangerous combo. Bennett solid in all phases of the game with strong ground strokes and the soft-spoken, but athletic Shroyer making plays at the net as well as from the back line. “It feels pretty good (to be sectional champions),” Shroyer said. They also showed they are the most dangerous when challenged. In both matches, the won the opening set 6-0. “That’s huge,” Ben-
nett said. “But, at the same time, you still have to come back and win the second set. I think in both matches, we let our intensity drop a little at the start of the second set.” But, not for long. Against Northeastern, the Jets duo won the opening game of the second set, before Lehman won six of the next seven games to cruise into the final. “The guys just came out and dominated this morning,” Lehman coach Kristy Sherman said. “This was a great day for them.” Against MiltonUnion, things got a little more interesting — just made which Lehman more dangerous. After winning the first set 6-0 and taking a 3-1 lead in the second set, Lehman found themselves even at 3-3 in the second set after Milton hold of serve and break.
It was an uncharacteristic game for Bennett from the service line, where he appeared to be in some pain serving. “As I disclosed the other day, I have a minor injury that bothers me from time to time,” Bennett said. “But, that’s no excuse for me double faulting three times in one game.” But, the Cavaliers duo wasted no time responding. “I don’t really know how to explain it,” Shroyer said. “But, when we get in tough situations like that, we are able to play better.” Three games later, the match was over — with a Shroyer hold of server sandwiched in-between two breaks of Milton’s serve. “I just looked at Mitchell (Shroyer when it was 3-3),” Bennett said. “I said, ‘now is the time.’” Now, they await their draw for the district

tournament after getting two more matches under their belt. They are playing doubles together for the first time. “I think today was big for them,” Sherman said. “We are going to try and get them some more matches early in the week to get ready for district — because you know the Cincinnati teams are going to be strong. You never know with the draw — but they have put themselves in the best position they could.” And as they showed at sectionals, they will take nothing for granted. “Being a one seed doesn’t matter when you get down there,” Bennett said about district. “We have got to make sure we don’t let our intensity drop. We have got to go down there and play like a four seed.” The rest will take care of itself — rain or shine — indoors or outdoors.

RYAN HUNTER-REAY leads Helio Castroneves, of Brazil, into the first turn during a practice session on the second day of qualifications for the Indianapolis 500 auto race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis Sunday.
Young American qualify easily Sunday
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Josef Newgarden and Graham Rahal took care of business right away Sunday. Less than 24 hours after getting bumped out of the top 24 starting spots, Newgarden and Rahal posted the two fastest four-lap averages on Bump Day, easily earning spots in the race. On a day that lacked the usual drama, tension and rumors, all nine drivers who made attempts on the second and final day of Indy qualifications made it into the 33-car field, though nobody had it easier than the two young American drivers — Newgarden and Rahal. “I don’t want to sound too confident, but I knew we would be fine,” Newgarden said after delivering the day’s best qualifying run at 225.731 mph. “I think we would have been OK yesterday if we would have had another shot at it.” Newgarden, the Tennessee native who finished fifth in Brazil, wanted to take another shot Saturday but was left sitting in qualifying line when the gun sounded at 6 p.m. He had to wait another 18 hours to get a second shot, this time leaving no doubt he belonged. His qualifying speed from Sunday would have been good enough for 21st, the outside of Row 7, if it happened a day earlier. Instead, he’ll start 25th, the inside of Row 9. Rahal had struggled all week — and not just because he was using a Honda engine. The nine drivers in the first three rows of the three-car, 11row grid are all powered by Chevrolets. The top

Honda qualifier was Canadian Alex Tagliani, the 2011 Indy pole-sitter. He’ll start 11th, the middle of Row 4, after going 227.386. Rahal, who drives for his father, Bobby, the 1986 Indy winner, couldn’t quite get his car right. But when it mattered Sunday, Rahal easily made it in with an average speed of 225.007 to claim the No. 26 starting spot — the middle of Row 9. “I’ve certainly had better (weeks), I’ve certainly had some that were more challenging,” Rahal said after locking up his sixth straight Indy start. “But there have been some mysteries behind a lot of our speed problems. I think the first few days people thought we were being extremely slow, but really we were just being
really conservative.” They were the lucky ones. Conor Daly, Buddy Lazier and Katherine Legge spent most of the afternoon trying to figure out how to get more speed — if they had to re-qualify their cars. Daly had a tough week. After flying back from two races in Spain, the airline lost his HANS device, and after Thursday’s crash A.J. Foyt’s crew had to rebuild Daly’s car. They were working overtime again Saturday night after Daly’s first qualifying attempted was derailed by puffs of smoke coming out of the rear end of the No. 41 car. But the 21year-old rookie from suburban Indy returned to the 2.5-mile oval Sunday and put his car on the inside of Row 11 with an average of 223.582.
Johnson wins 4th All-Star race CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Cross another milestone off of Jimmie Johnson's list. He stands alone in All-Star history. “Five-time” became the first four-time winner of NASCAR's annual All-Star race, breaking a tie with the late Dale Earnhardt and teammate Jeff Gordon on Saturday night. “To beat Jeff and Earnhardt, two guys that I have looked up to my whole life, two massive icons of our sport, this means the world to me,” Johnson said. He also joined the late Davey Allison as only
1451 N. Vandemark Rd., Sidney, OH 45365
the second driver to win back-to-back All-Star races. It was fitting that he did it at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the track Johnson, the five-time NASCAR champion, has dominated since his 2002 rookie season. Johnson has won six points races at Charlotte, led more than 1,600 laps and the win in the $1 million Sprint All-Star Race was his second straight, fourth in 12 years. He also won in 2003 and 2006. A day after Johnson overshot his pit stall during qualifying to

earn a poor starting spot, his Hendrick Motorsports crew changed four tires in 11 seconds on the mandatory final spot to send Johnson back onto the track in second place for the final restart. He lined up inside of teammate Kasey Kahne for the final 10-lap sprint to the cash, and the two battled side-byside for a little more than a lap before Johnson cleared Kahne completely. He then sailed away to an easy victory. Joey Logano finished second and Kyle Busch was third.

Belmont Stakes: Oxbow vs. Orb in the cards BALTIMORE (AP) ‚Äî Another year, another Triple Crown hopeful unable to come through. After Oxbow upset Kentucky Derby winner Orb in Saturday’s Preakness to extend racing’s Triple Crown drought to 36 years, the next best alternative for the Belmont Stakes is a rematch. And, it appears one is in the making. Both trainers are giving every indication their classicwinning colts will run in
the Belmont on June 8. “You know me,” Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas said after Oxbow’s 1 ¬æ-length victory over Itsmyluckyday, with 3-5 favorite Orb finishing fourth. “I like to rack them up in the big events. So, I’ll probably go.” Trainer Shug McGaughey says he’d like to run Orb in the Belmont as long as the colt is doing well. “The Belmont Stakes is on our radar screen,”
McGaughey said Sunday after arriving back at Belmont Park and checking on his Derby winner, who was vanned back earlier in the day. After a talk with Orb’s owners Ogden Mills “Dinny” Phipps and Stuart Janney III, McGaughey said, “We just all came to the conclusion that we should just watch Orb and see. I think everything is in good shape. We’d like to run. “But yesterday took a little bit out of him and
he’s already run five times this year and it’s only the middle of May. I’d sure like to have him fresh for Saratoga and a Jim Dandy/Travers kind of a go.” A year ago, there was great anticipation for a Triple try after I’ll Have Another won the Derby and Preakness, but the colt was scratched the day before the Belmont because of a tendon injury. The most recent of 20 rematches between classic winners in the Bel-
mont was two years ago, with Derby winner Animal Kingdom and Preakness winner Shackleford hooking up — but 24-1 long shot Ruler On Ice pulled the upset. Hours after Oxbow’s win at 15-1 odds gave Lukas his record 14th Triple Crown race win ‚— and sixth Preakness — the trainer and his colt where on the road back to Churchill Downs. If both show up for the 1¬Ω -mile Belmont,
a formidable lineup of challengers could be waiting. Todd Pletcher has five possible starters: Derby runners Revolutionary (third), Overanalyze (11th) and Palace Malice (12th), as well as a pair of fillies in Dreaming of Julia and Unlimited Budget. Other possibles include Derby runner-up Golden Soul, Mylute (fifth in the Derby, third in the Preakness), Freedom Child, Power Broker and Code West.

zer, a New York psychotherapist, suggests a moderate workout or other physical activity because exercise can actually counter depression. “Being active is the key to everything, because it revs up the metabolism and also makes people feel better about themselves,” she says. “Ironically, many people find that once they’ve accepted the way they look, they find the motivation to do something about the extra weight. Either way, they learn to like themselves and to enjoy life as well.” Ideally, the best solution is to improve your selfimage and also to do something about the weight. However, dealing with problems that
stem from being overweight takes time. Begin to build your self-esteem by focusing on your positive traits, and you will begin to see yourself as an attractive, interesting and worthwhile person and, eventually, others will, as well.

(including bosses, parents and VIPs) can see that you’ve got what it takes. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You’ll enjoy traveling today or exploring new ideas and learning new things, because you want to expand your horizons. It will thrill and stimulate you to push the sides of the envelope. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Someone might help you at home today. You might receive a gift or physical, financial or psychological support for something you want to do with your family. Be ready to accept this help. YOU BORN TODAY You have high standards for yourself, professionally speaking. You’re energetic, persistent and hardworking. Because of this, you can achieve a lot. You have a good memory and are always engaged in whatever you do. You love to devote time to family. A lovely year awaits you with fun, social occasions and good relationships with others.

ting to know people. While people can be attracted to you regardless of what you weigh, no one appreciates hearing complaints chronic about weight. You can actually invite others to make snide jokes and remarks about you by putting yourself down, or always saying you need to go on a diet. However, overweight people are often the target of fat jokes and thoughtless comments through no fault of their own. While no one is exempt from teasing, to the heavy person it can be much more painful. One way of putting a stop to it is to simply ignore it. When the overweight blues strike, Susan Ten-

What kind of day will tomorrow be? To find out what the stars say, read the forecast given for your birth sign. For Wednesday, May 22, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Conversations with partners and close friends will be successful and upbeat today. Nevertheless, you might have to compromise a bit or go more than halfway to meet others. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is an excellent day at work. Co-workers are supportive. You might be able to boost your income or cut costs. You might even get a raise. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be receptive to others today, and accept social invitations, because this is a party day for you! Enjoy sports, the arts, movies and playful times with children. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a great day to cocoon at home or to invite people over. (Yes, these are two opposite impulses, but go figure.) Basically, you are enjoying home and family today. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Writers, actors, teachers and those of you in sales or who drive for a living will enjoy today. Why? Because you’re keen to move ideas, people or packages from A to B.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Trust your moneymaking ideas, because you’re in the zone today. Your suggestions might impress bosses and VIPs; who knows? LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today the Moon is in your sign, dancing with lucky Jupiter. This promotes travel opportunities and a general sense of happiness and wellbeing. Enjoy schmoozing with others. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Private meetings and behind-the-scenes situations are taking place today. Whatever happens could benefit you indirectly through the wealth of others. Keep your pockets open. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An important, confidential conversation with a female acquaintance might arise today. Whatever happens, both parties will feel better afterward. Call it a sharing of joy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Flattering news about your working habits will be made public today. Just take a bow. It looks like important people
as social outcasts, thinking no one will like them because of their appearance. This self-consciousness can prevent them from reaching out and making friends, she adds. “Sometimes our weight-conscious world overweight overlooks teens,” Laskoski says. “Sometimes they’re excluded. But sometimes they become their own worst enemy and exclude themselves. If you act like you don’t want to be included, then that’s what will happen.” Maintaining a positive attitude rather than dwelling on your weight is important when get-

And because of your commitment to your causes, somehow your daily needs are met, often magically. A major change might take place in your year ahead, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2004. Birthdate of: Lisa Edelstein, actress; James Phelan, novelist; Henri Rousseau, artist.

The I was told that since t h y r o i d - s t i m u l a t i n g I don’t have antibodies, hormone is made by the
pituitary gland in the brain, and its job is to stimulate the thyroid gland in the neck to make more thyroid hormone. If the thyroid gland is not producing quite enough hormone, usually because of autoimmune disease (antibodies attacking the thyroid), the brain senses this and increases TSH. Sometimes the thyroid gland is able to make enough hormone to be in the normal range. We call this “subclinical hypothyroidism,” or “compensated primary hypothyroidism.” Most physicians do not treat this condition if there are no other symptoms
of hypothyroidism, such as fatigue, cold intolerance or muscle weakness. However, in this situation, having thyroid antibodies, showing autoimmune disease, makes the development of symptomatic hypothyroidism much more likely. If you have no symptoms, no antibodies and normal free T4 levels, then I don’t think you need treatment, but just to have periodic tests of both TSH and free T4. Some people feel that the range of normal TSH in the elderly (and you aren’t really quite there) should include levels as high as you reported.

year-old relative will die soon because she needs to inherit some money. I was floored and had a hard time keeping the shock off my face. Does work bring out the worst in people?

In your case, you appear to work with someone who “overshares.” I don’t think your hide is too thin, and I’m not in a position to tell you if you’re in the wrong job. You may, however, be overdue for a vacation. P.S. Let’s cross our fingers and hope that relative makes it to 110.

Recreational Water Illness and Injury Prevention Week underway Summer is fast approaching and swimming pools are preparing to open in Shelby County. May 20-26 marks the ninth annual Recreational Water Illness and Injury Prevention Week. This observance highlights easy and effective steps swimmers can take to reduce health and safety risks at swimming pools, hot tubs/spas, and other recreational water venues. Recreational water illnesses (RWI) are illnesses caused by germs in the water we swim and play in, officials of the SidneyShelby County Health Department said. A person can become ill by swallowing, inhaling aerosols, or contacting with contaminated water from pools, hot tubs/spas, water play areas, interactive fountains, lakes, rivers, or oceans. Chemicals in the water or air can also cause indoor air quality problems. A 2012 study done in Atlanta,
Georgia showed that 59 percent of the pool filters tested contained disease causing bacteria and parasites. Swimmers need to practice good swimmer hygiene by taking a preswim shower with soap and not swimming when ill with diarrhea. Wash hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Take kids on bathroom breaks and check diapers often. Change diapers in a diaper-changing area, not poolside. These practices help to protect all swimmers from contacting diseasecausing germs in recreational water venues. And remember, don’t swallow or put the water in your mouth. Additional information on healthy swimming is available at http://www.shelbycountyhealthdept.org/swimming.html. Injuries and drowning can occur in and around recreational water, too.
The Centers for Disease states that Control drowning is the leading cause of injury death among children age 1-4 years. On average, 10 people die from drowning each day, including two age less than 15 years. Keep an eye on kids at all times. Use appropriately fitted life jackets for each person when boating. And don’t forget the sunscreen. Use at least SPF 15 and reapply after swimming. The Sidney-Shelby County Health Department has a role in preventing RWIs. In the United States, all pool codes are independently written and enforced by state and/or local agencies. Health Department sanitarians inspect all public pools and spas regularly to ensure the water is safe to swim in and the pool and spa areas are safe to use and comply with state rules. Seasonal outdoor pools are checked monthly.
First reading for electric rate increase approved by JC Council JACKSON CENTER – A first reading of an ordinance to increase village electric rates was given by Jackson Center Village Council on Monday night. If approved, residential customers would see a 1.3 percent increase in electric rates, while general service customers will see a .3 percent increase and the increase for large users would be 7.5 percent. General service and demand customers would pay an additional 1.1 percent. It was noted that street lighting charges also will rise. Council approved a resolution requesting certification from the county auditor for the amount a replacement levy would earn. When the letter, is received, council is expected to approve a resolution to put the levy on the November ballot, The levy will earn about the same amount as the current levy has generated
in recent years, village officials reported. An ordinance was approved designating an alley between Pike Street and Davis Street at a point between Main and Linden streets for oneway traffic to the south only. Village Administrator Bruce Metz reported LeCresha Clark will be the pool manager this summer and MaKenzie May and Dakota Sowders will be assistant managers. He reported they have six life guards and would like to have 12. Sidney pool officials have been contacted to see if their guards would like to get extra hours by working at the Jackson Center pool. Metz also noted that the cost of updating the computer server will be $15568. In other business council • Approved a resolu-
tion to authorize the establishment of a special revenue fund for parks and recreation. • Passed an ordinance adjusting annual appropriations in the general fund to pay for the biannual audit. • Approved the rezoning of 109 S. Main St. from C-1 to R-1 at the request of Phillip and Frances Cummons. • Authorized the purchase of a new backhoe for the village. Metz reported the village sold the old backhoe for $29,000. • Gave second reading to an ordinance for the future replacement of conduit on Ohio 274 when the state makes improvements. • Learned that Councilman Larry Wahrer will write a letter on behalf of the village to legislators requesting Local Government Fund allocations from the state be restored.

The Mighty, All-Powerful Brain
Your brain is the captain of an amazing ship. It controls everything you do – including reading newspapers like the Troy Daily News, Piqua Daily Call and Sidney Daily News! Your brain is part of your body’s nervous system. The nervous system controls movement, thought and emotion. Without your nervous system, you wouldn’t be able to function. The brain is the boss of your nervous system and has five parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum, the brain stem, the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus. The cerebrum is the biggest part of the brain that controls thought, language and voluntary muscles, which are the muscles you can control. You also use your cerebrum when you think hard in school and when you need to remember things. The cerebellum is a lot small than the cerebrum, but still very important. It controls balance, movement and coordination. If it weren’t for the cerebellum, you wouldn’t be able to stand without falling! Your brain stem connects the rest of the brain to your spinal cord. It’s the part in charge of major things that keep you alive, like breathing, blood pressure and digesting food. Unlike the cerebrum, the brain stem controls your involuntary muscles – the ones
Protect Your Brain! Whether you bike, skateboard or Rollerblade, you should wear a helmet to shield your brain. To demonstrate why, get two eggs. Pretend that the egg’s shell is a skull and its insides are the brain. Spread some newspaper on the ground and drop one of the eggs on the newspaper. It should break – because it wasn’t wearing a helmet. Now, use newspaper, tissue paper, Styrofoam or anything else that will cushion your egg, to make a “helmet” for your second egg. Drop your egg wearing the helmet from the same height. Notice that it remained unbroken (we hope.) Are you starting to think it’s a good idea to wear a helmet while biking and skating? If your second egg broke, was your “helmet” designed unsafe? Did the egg fall at an angle that left it unprotected? How could you make a better helmet? (Adapted from “Protect Your Brain” from Howtosmile.org, University of Washington.)

that work without you thinking about it, such as your heart and stomach. The tiny pituitary gland produces and releases hormones into the body – hormones like the ones that help you grow and change. Finally, your hypothalamus regulates your body temperature, emotions, hunger and thirst. The brain has many jobs, but it needs help from nerves and the spinal cord, too. Every action you do happens because your brain, your nerves and your spinal cord work together! (Adapted from Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS & the Brain Educator’s Guide.)
